    So I have a Samsung Captivate (Galaxy S) that when I hook it up to my PC, my PC doesn't recognize it, although the phone beeps and goes to the USB connection screen. I tried downloading the USB driver from Samsung, but still no luck.

    Additionally, I recently broke my screen - won't light up at all, although the buttons on the bottom row do, and its still making the startup noises so I know its running.

    With that said, I need to recover pictures off its harddrive, possibly some contacts as well that never made it to the SIM card. Also, my phone doesn't have the micro SD, just the internal storage.

    Let me know if I need to provide any other info -- thanks!
